I applied through college or university and interviewed at Macquarie Group.

Interview Details – On campus recruiting like all other banks, then first round interviews on campus with a girl from HR or a relatively junior person, then took some ridiculously long assessment test, then final round superday at the company office (3-4 interviews, 30 min each). They did draw out the process a lot longer than I would have liked, but they gave me two weeks to decide and let me pick my start date the following summer.

Interview Question – Why do you want to work specifically at Macquarie? (didn't know much about the firm when I applied)   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 7+ weeks - interviewed at Macquarie Group in August 2007.

Interview Details – 2 phone call + 2 on-site +1 simple computer test, quite easy compared with other banks, just some behavioral and motivation questions

Quality of staffs and company culture are mediocre, but try to convince them that Macquarie will be your dedicated choice if hired

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Macquarie Group in January 2011.

Interview Details – You first get a call from their HR. She was very nice and asked behavior questions, like"decribing one of your most recent successful teamwork", and "What is your career goal", "Why macquarie ?". Then asked two analytical questions, first was how to compute the speed of new york subway train. Then second was the sqrt of 1000. Both of them were very easy.

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Macquarie Group in November 2010.

Interview Details – First started off with a campus recruiting interview which invited me to a test that involved parts that resembled that SAT and also a personality test.

Then I was invited to final rounds at their office in New York, which consisted of two behavioral interviews by two interviewers each, and finally a discussion interview on a packet that we had to read for an hour once we got on to the site.
